Con-way Inc. has named Stephen Krull executive vice president, general counsel and secretary. Krull, 46, joins Con-way from Toledo, Ohio-based Owens Corning, where he most recently served as senior vice president, general counsel and secretary for the global producer of residential and commercial building materials, glass-fiber reinforcements and engineered materials.

“We’re pleased to welcome Steve to the Con-way team,” says Douglas Stotlar, president and chief executive officer of the Ann Arbor, Mich.-based less-than-truckload company. “He brings valuable background and business experience to the organization, and we look forward to his contributions.”

As Con-way’s chief attorney, Krull assumes responsibility for management of the company’s legal staff, external legal resources, securities law compliance, corporate governance, ethics and compliance matters, financial transactions and general corporate legal matters. He also serves as the company’s chief privacy officer and is a member of the executive management team.

Krull served as a senior vice president and Owens Corning’s chief legal counsel since 2003. Over a 15-year career with Owens Corning, he advanced through a series of increasingly responsible positions, including division counsel, general counsel, North American Building Materials; vice president and general counsel of operations; and vice president of corporate communications.

Prior to Owens Corning, Krull was corporate counsel for Chicago-based A. B. Dick Co. and an associate attorney with Sidley & Austin, a Chicago law firm where he specialized in commercial transactions.
